Put the CDROM before the hard drive in the boot priority, or just remove the hard drive from the boot list temporarily.

Slots 1 & 3 are good for BH-5 RAM, 2 & 4 are good for TCCD and everything else. I thought it only applied when overclocking, guess not! Good job, make sure you update the BIOS.

heh, actually, i'm not even using UV...bought it because it was most recommended. has a ton of options in the bios...never seen so many. i've only built a few computers tho...never one with such high quality parts....in fact, first time i'd seen one of these new pcie cards....omg they are huge. like 8 - 9 inches long. but i doubt you'll have problems....or if you do, it will be something minor....like the memory channels....spent thursday/friday evenings, and half of today working on that **** thing....only to find out it was that...ah well, my newbness shines through
i must say it runs sooooo friggin fast. never seen a comp boot up and into windows so quickly....cant wait till monday so i can play a game on it. (no broadband at home, so i keep it at work, till i move anyway....2 weeks i hope)
